Mass Effect: Andromeda was revealed on June 15, 2015, during EA’s press conference at E3 2015 in the form of a trailer; it was subsequently uploaded to the Mass Effect YouTube channel on the same day. A teaser trailer was uploaded to the channel on the “Mass Effect Day” on November 7, 2015.
The game is being developed using DICE’s Frostbite 3 and is set for release in Q4 2016. BioWare has said that “We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.
